Measuring Anxiety and Depression in Ghanaian and U.S. College Students
Bettmann, Joanna E.; Prince, Kort C.; Hardy, Clinton J.; Dwumah, Peter
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v47 n2 p119-130 Apr 2019
Differences between Ghanaian (n = 465) and U.S. (n = 425) college students on the Hopkins Symptom Checklist-25 (HSCL-25; Mollica, Wyshak, de Marneffe, Khuon, & Lavelle, 1987) were examined. Compared with their U.S. counterparts, Ghanaians reported less general distress related to anxiety and depression, more anxiety-specific distress, and no differences in depression-specific distress. A multidimensional approach may be most appropriate in HSCL-25 screening for symptoms of anxiety and depression.
